Thiruvananthapuram: The plus-one exams, that were postponed due to the raging COVID-19 pandemic, will now be conducted from September 6 to 16. There would be no improvement exam.
The VHSE first-year exam will be held from September 7 to 16. The fees for both the exams can be remitted before June 15. However, the plus-two classes will begin this month itself.
The application forms for the plus-one exam will be available on the website www.dhsekerala.gov.in or from the schools. SCOLE Kerala (State Council for Open and Lifelong Education – Kerala) students should apply from the schools allotted for them.
The plus-two grade will be determined by adding the plus-one score as well. Only those who have undergone Continuous Evaluation can appear for the exam. Also, only if application is submitted for the first-year examination will the students be eligible for further studies. If only the students appear for all the exams, will they be allowed to register for the plus-two exams next year.
